Removing carbs

Postby vaughn » Sun Mar 22, 2015 8:27 pm



Do I have to remove the fairing to take off the carbs on a 83 Aspencade. Pistol Pete's instructions have you moving it forward to access the fasteners holding the heat shields. I loosened the one side of the fairing to lift it enough to access the 2 screws, but they are real tight. I tried an impact tool I have but no go. Will try some PB blaster and let it set awhile. I don't have anyone to help hold the fairing from tipping forward to loosen the whole thing at once. I only see 2 fasteners. I think Pete mentioned 3. Do I have to remove the left engine guard to slide the carbs out. I had them partway slid out a couple years ago to replace the throttle cables. I just installed a new clutch cable on it. Do I have to loosen the radiator to clear the fan motor?

No I have never had to remove anything and only loosen the left side engine guard. It's tight but it wiggles out. taking off the #1and 3 caps makes it easier too. You can also loosen the fuel tank and push it back an inch or so, removing the fuel filter too.

Thanks RB. I think I will put on new fuel lines when I reinstall them too.
